Teeth Cleanings in Vista, CA

Regularly scheduled professional cleanings are critical to maintaining a healthy mouth and beautiful smile. During your cleaning appointment, the hygienist will examine your mouth and perform the following procedures:

A bridge replaces missing teeth with natural-looking, artificial teeth.
The types of bridges are:

  • Remove plaque
    These attach artificial teeth to the adjoining healthy teeth with crowns
  • Remove tartar
    Plaque left on teeth over time hardens and becomes calculus (tartar). It can only be removed with dental tools. Tartar can cause gums to bleed, leading to periodontal disease.
  • Polish Teeth
    This final step removes minor stains and any remaining plaque, making teeth their whitest and brightest!

For most people, Smile Essentials recommends a professional cleaning every six months to keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong.
